The Storm are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 7-22 ATS in their last 29 vs. Western Conference. The Aces are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games. The over is 7-0 in Storm last 7 overall. The over is 23-11 in Aces last 34 home games. The Storm are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Las Vegas and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Seattle Storm in the underdog role is attractive, but they've been shaky on the road as of late, which includes losses in 5 of their last 8 road games. The Las Vegas Aces are playing some of their best ball of the season, and they've won 3 of the 4 meetings this year against the Storm. I'd need an extra bucket or two to consider the Storm on the road here against the hot Aces. Give me the Aces and the small chalk.
